why o why would you want to be on a ducati when your on a much better bike, currently beating Dovi every race consistently running 5th, witch is better then you could ever hope to achove on the ducati and your battleing it out with the top guys so your always on TV...

now your seat is insecure, Yamaha is talking to Espargaro, and I doubt Nicky is going any where, seems like your sol...

Hhhmm on cals performance's so far yamaha should be getting behind him not plotting his exit . What all this highlights is the lack of competitive bikes and Dorna need to accept responsibility for this with constant changing of the rules and failing the reduce costs . If MotoGP had been correctly ran suzuki and kawasaki would still be there and probably joined by Aprillia and BMW . wether these would have able to compete is a big question but more factory bikes would be better than CRT's.

not a lot of options... If Spies is out, he could take tbe Paramac seat, or he gets lucky and Honda picks him up
or Suzuki really does come back (but their only gona have one bike) I doubt Tech 3 would resign him - after all when have they ever kept anybody for four years? nope, he's fkd... its CRT or moto2 lol

Cal needs to do better in races, he is great for a few laps and then always fades away or struggles to overtake and gets struck behind someone slower. He also makes too many mistakes and ends up losing lots of positions that he then has top spend all race regaining.

That said I find it hard to believe that Cal could be out of a ride for 2014, he's the best of the rest currently.

Herve is a squid and as close as racing is not having the same equipment DOES make a difference on any riders mental prep.
Cal keep riding the wheels off of it and GOOD LUCK.

Herve also believes that the Tech3 Moto2 bike is just as good as any Moto2 bike.
Kent finishes 18, 18, 27th and that race he was 1'36 behind.
Rossi's finishes DNF, 24th, 25th.

Brad Smith on his 1st season finished overall 7th.

So to recap, Cal b!tches to the press he may get replaced by Pol, but signed his own death warrant by holding out for a Ducati ride and stuck himself with a one year deal at Tech 3.

Cal then proceeds to B&M after every race saying his bike isn't competitive.

What factory squad would want to put up with that?
